You guys! It’s here, The Corinthian wedding of our dreams! Ever since we started photographing weddings, The Corinthian has been on our bucket list of luxury Houston wedding venues. You can only imagine our joy when we found that our dream venue came with an even more incredible couple!!
She’s a hug over a handshake, he’s effortlessly charismatic, and don’t even get me started on their dog! Lauren and Brett are genuine and charming, real-life dream clients. Their gorgeous winter wedding with Spell events was every bit as breathtakingly beautiful as we hoped it would be, and more!
We absolutely adore the Blushworthy team! Their makeup is spectacular! As a result, their brides feel like absolute princesses on their wedding day. We love the heart they put into their work and are ever so happy to recommend them to our brides!
Epic style is apparently a trademark of all Hammond women. We love that Lauren incorporated her Ona Hammond’s chic fur into her wedding day attire. Those personal touches make for memorable detail pictures any bride will cherish for years to come.
No joke, I had goosebumps when Lauren showed us a sneak peek of her gown. Those sleeves alone, my word. This dress was absolutely made for Lauren.
You would never guess from seeing images of her that Lauren is shy. Her bright bubbly personality makes absolutely everyone feel like her instant best friend. In true form on her wedding day, she wanted her beautiful friends and family to share her spotlight. She shines her brightest bringing joy to others. A servants heart like Lauren’s makes it so easy to take stunning images of her.
We really have to give it to our grooms for having impeccable taste! Round of applause to all of our grooms who incorporate thoughtful details into their wedding day look. From custom suits to monogram cuffs, and personalized cufflinks. Fellas, you have stepped the game up a notch!
We’re all about timeless, formal images, but we love when our couples trust us and feel comfortable enough with us to really let their personalities shine on their wedding day. To us, there is always time to laugh with your besties in between poses. Those hugs, giggles and sweet moments are what make our job so wonderful.
Oh my word, y’all! These altar arrangements absolutely stole the show! Plants n’ Petals used lucite cubes to add dynamic interest and most dreamy florals we ever did see. They captured Lauren’s vision of winter romance to a tee!! The spectacular full white blooms almost looked like snow resting on the greenery.
Lauren and Brett chose to not incorporate a first look into their wedding day. Instead, Lauren wanted a first look with her dad, which we always love! During our first meeting, Lauren beamed when we mentioned the possibility of sharing this moment with her father. They are so dear to each other and super close. In fact, Lauren and her dad have regular movie-watching and music-listening daddy/daughter dates. How sweet is that?!
As we mentioned, Lauren wanted to stay traditional and not see Brett before becoming husband and wife. When we mentioned a “first touch”, they loved the idea of incorporating a special moment just the two of them while keeping in tradition with not truly seeing each other before the ceremony. We love Lauren’s joyful expression as she snuck up behind her hubby. If only she could see Brett’s sweet tearful eyes. You know we were definitely holding back tears on this one too!
Spell Events took care of every last lavish detail for Lauren and Brett’s romantic day. From custom mirrors to the sparkle across the twinkling ballroom everything was perfection.
Both Brett and Lauren’s favorite part of the whole day lied in these incredible moments of the ceremony! I think Brett’s sweet tear-filled expression is more than any bride could dream of. Such a special moment between the two of them!
There wasn’t a dry eye to be found after Lauren and Brett’s touching ceremony. Their joyful sincerity made everyone feel like a part of their love story.
The incredible staff at the Corinthian transformed the ceremony space into a glittering daydream in no time flat. While guests enjoy cocktails and delicious treats, the space is buzzing with staff members perfecting place settings, while florists make magic on each table, and the Spell Events goddesses prepare every last detail.
Brett and Lauren said one of their very favorite moments of the evening was standing at the top of the landing as man and wife looking out over all the most important people in both their lives. The energy as they entered was electric! Having attended many weddings together over the past years, their friends and family could hardly wait for their turn to congratulate Lauren and Brett!
One last twirl on the dance floor before making their grand getaway.
A first for us, instead of throwing petals or holding sparklers, Lauren and Brett exiting through a sea of handheld lights and get this, American flags. Their guests sang, The National Anthem as Brett and Lauren exited. They made sure to share a few romantic movie level kisses before driving away.
Lauren and Brett, you are both gems! We cannot wait to hear about your Parisian honeymoon, and all the fabulous adventures you will share as husband and wife. Your wedding day was better than we could have ever imagined and we wish you both so many years of happiness together!!
